Stormy view

Hello again 🙂  Last week we made a return visit to stay at Johanna Beach which is near Cape Otway, part of The Great Ocean Road trail. Being the middle of winter the weather was very stormy with some very rough seas, which being from Swansea in the UK, I love. The sense of being a small part of a wild landscape is very thrilling 😀

Hello! I hope everyone has had a good week – it is cold and wet here, very wintry.  This image was taken late afternoon after a brief but intense thunder storm whilst we were staying at Johanna Beach near Cape Otway last month.  The storms that came later that night were incredibly dramatic with lightening that lasted hours.

Seaside Garland.

Hello to everyone!  As I have often remarked on this blog, I am constantly amazed by the patterns in nature.  I found this garland of different seaweeds on the foreshore which appears to have been shaped by the tide – there were no signs of disturbance in the sand, and I was so happy with my discovery 😀 😀 I love the beauty of the different shapes, textures and contrasting colours.

It’s been a very long time since I have posted anything –  a lot has happened as I’m sure is the case for everyone. In August 2017 I received a diagnosis of primary breast cancer and 11 months after finishing active treatment I have recently had a diagnosis of secondary or metastatic breast cancer.

Thanks to a wonderful support network of family and friends I am very positive and decided to resume the blog and given the theme an update…getting out with my camera is a good thing and the blog is good motivation to do so 🙂

We recently had a wonderful stay at Johanna near Cape Otway and visited many of the beautiful beaches along The Great Ocean Road.  At a small beach called Wild Dog Cove I found so many beautiful things – this is a wet feather with a guest attached!

Little and large..

I was brought up on the coast in South Wales, UK and I do miss the sea, so visiting Anglesea was both strangely familiar and yet different.  Now living in mountain ranges in the southern hemisphere meant I ended up taking a lot of images that day – there was so much to see (and I didn’t have a macro lens when I lived in the UK)!!  There will be more to come…
